Hello Myswissalps members,
We are 5 adults and 1 kid from Hamburg, Germany planned 3 days/4 nights trip during April 2020, but unfortunately it has been cancelled due to Covid-19.
Again we are planning to visit the Jungfrau region for 4 Days/5 nights between Oct 10 - 16 2020. We have booked a holiday home/apartment at Lauterbrunnen and planning to travel by train Hamburg --> Interlaken ost and return via the same route.
Last time Mr.rockoyster had suggested us the great Itinerary and the following has been planned based on his inputs.
Oct 10 - Start from Hamburg --> Reach Interlaken/Lauterbrunnen by evening - Rest day
Oct 11 - Day trip to Zermatt -- Visit Gornergrat & back to Lauterbrunnen
Oct 12 - Visit Schilthorn/Murren/Trummelbach Falls
Oct 13 - visit Jungfraujoch & other places around it ( I request good suggestions from members)
Oct 14 - visit Grindelwald/First & Bachalpsee ( I request good suggestions from members)
Oct 15 - Return train to Hamburg
Swiss Travel Pass/Half Fare Card - According to our itinerary we are planning to buy "Half fare Card". I would like to receive your recommendation on this.
Jungfrau Travel Pass - Unlimited for 3 days included one trip to Jungfraujoch top . It costs 149 Chf -Adults & 30 CHF - Kids (6-15). I think it would be best option to buy this pass along with Half Fare Card.
Queries Related to use of Half fare card:
After I buy Half fare card Online (SBB app) using my login credentials. I would like to know that, whenever I buy a online ticket the fare will be automatically reduced by half ? Is it works like that?
For example : Lauterbrunnen --> Zermatt, the SBB app shows - 45.30 CHF for single Journey, CHF 75 Includluding the Return Trip.
In this case, if I buy this ticket via SBB app with my Half fare card, whether it will be reduced to 45.30/2 = 22.65 chf or by default it shows the discounted fare ?
Also I would like to know that, is there any conversion/additional charge if i use the credit card issued by a German bank ?
Looking forward to your valuable tips & suggestions.
Have a Nice Day
